Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Among the perplexities addressed by the political and regional-studies scholars is that post-socialist peoples are being encouraged to regain a sense of national identity at the same time they are being told that the nation state is being phased out, and being exhorted to rejoin Europe as Europe itself becomes an ever more erratic moving target. Seven of the eight studies were produced by the project based at the University of Birmingham. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
